Welcome to HistoryHighlights.com
My name is Bill Wiemuth. I love sharing fascinating stories from the pages of history. Over the last two decades, I have written and produced 17 installments in the History Highlights series of books. Along the way, I have enjoyed the opportunity to share more than 3,000 presentations aboard cruises and for corporate events across the U.S. and internationally. I also have appeared for numerous regional and national radio television programs including National Public Radio, CNN’s Headline News and ABC’s Good Morning, America.

In addition to the joy of traveling to visit historical sites and endless rewarding hours of research, I am thankful for skills developed as I earned a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Texas at Arlington. I also have been recognized as a Certified Interpretive Guide by the National Association of Interpretation which does training for the National Park Service.

When we get our revised cruise dates for the remainder of 2020, I will post them here. Check back soon.

Until we can travel together again, please enjoy my audiobooks, paperback books, and Kindle eBooks and video presentations. Each highlights the drama and significance of incredible, true stories from U.S. history. You can read or listen to these overview books in about an hour. Join me for a journey of discovery.
